Neutrik opticalCON® ADVANCED QUAD NKO4

Following on the success of opticalCON ADVANCED DUO, the opticalCON® ADVANCED QUAD series, also an LC-based connector system, doubles the fibre count to offer a rugged point-to-point connection.

The opticalCON QUAD cable connector accommodates four PC/APC optical channels, based on conventional and proven LC connectivity, protected by a ruggedised and durable all-metal housing.
